Quiet RV Air Conditioner Recommendation for Non-Ducted Application


I am looking for a rooftop AC unit 13.5K BTU or better, low profile and quiet. The quieter the better. What is the quietest both standard size and low-profile size of that cooling capacity? This is a new installation on curved roof, so that is important to note.

Advent AC units are considered by most RVers to be the most quiet and the most efficient so that would be the brand I would recommend. Since you have a non-ducted roof setup currently the best option is the Advent Air part # ACM135C. This is also 13,500 btu like you said you need as well.

The description for the optional heat strip says that it will warm up on a frosty morning. That doesn't really tell me how powerful it is. If, for example, I park my insulated RV somewhere and it goes down to 20 degrees, is this heat strip sufficient to raise the temperature of a small, insulated (100 sq ft) RV to 68 degrees? Or will it just warm things up 5-10 degrees? 95238

The heat strip will help take the chill out of a frosty morning, but it's likely not going to be enough by itself to keep your camper toasty on a 20 degree day. For this you will probably need a separate furnace/heater. 70402

For a ducted system the Advent Air # ACCAR135 will work really well and is extremely quiet. 67295

@ChrisR Thank you! I have a Demetic Duotherm now and it has a remote control. Can i just buy this Advent you recommended or do i need to buy the control box too (the inside part)? Thanks. 67368

@CustomerV Actually if you have an existing Dometic setup you'll want to go with the Advent Air # ACDOM135 , which will allow you to use your current control box. 67672
